Mariah To a Tea

“I just want to take a sip of tea, if they’ll let me – they told me there would be tea. 
Oh, it’s a disaster.  OK, well we’ll just have to rough it.
I’m gonna be just like everyone else with no hot tea!”
Mariah Carey‘s most memorable moment on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.

After last year’s debacle, everyone was kinda shocked that Mariah Carey returned to the scene of the crime.  Would she brave the single-digit Times Square temperature in an outfit more appropriate for San Tropez?  Duh!  While Seacrest looked like a frozen garden gnome bundled up head to toe, Mariah refused to close her flapping fur coat.  Do you think those titties stay perky on their own?  She performed two songs.  First was “Vision of Love”, which I believe was mostly sung live.  Then came her monologue about hot tea – which made me fall just a little bit back in love with her.  She sang “Hero” – at least partially enhanced with a scratch track.  Illustrating why we miss Dick Clark, Ryan summed it up by effusively proclaiming, “And that is why she is…Mariah Carey!”  Um, OK.
